The busiest season in the retail industry has come and gone. Now that you have a little more downtime, this is a great time to do some clean-up, repairs and maintenance throughout your store. Take a look at our recommendations for getting your floors in excellent shape to start off the new year on the right foot, literally.
Schedule an Inspection
Now that the heavy foot traffic has come and gone, we recommend scheduling an inspection of your floor surfaces to determine if there are any repairs or maintenance that need to be made. Additionally, this will help you go into the new year with a strong understanding of the condition of your floors. Knowing the condition of your floors will help you develop a proper budget for 2021 so you know where, when and how to spend your flooring dollars.
Make Needed Repairs
After the inspection, it is important to repair any damaged areas to keep your floors as safe as possible for customers and employees. Common floor damage can include holes, cracks and spalling. Getting these items repaired now will make a big difference in preventing larger issues down the road.
